How can fibre help your business?
When people think of the benefits of super fast broadband, most will probably think about a lack of buffering and speedy downloads. Although that’s great (who doesn’t love loading up Netflix without a wait?!), the benefits of superfast can be even more impactful on small business owners. Now that the vast majority of people have access to an internet connection, the internet is a powerful tool that every business, big or small, should be utilising in order to maximise growth and service.
Curious? Well, lets take a look at some of the ways fibre broadband can help your business grow.
More people connected:
Does your business have a group of people on the same broadband connection? Slow broadband can be infuriating at the best of times, let alone when more than one person is trying to access it. By upgrading to superfast you give yourself more bandwidth, meaning everyone gets a strong speed to work with.
Upgraded your connection can open your business up the world of video conferencing. Being able to chat to someone face-to-face who is on the other side of the country, continent, or even world (!), makes communicating with customers and stakeholders that little bit easier.
Everyone knows how irritating it can be to run out of memory on a hard-drive. Cloud storage lets you keep store your data online and access it remotely. Not only will this free up your device’s storage, but it also makes it easier for you and your team to access your files wherever you are! In the office, you can create a shared drive that you and your colleagues can upload and download from any time you like, making the sharing of documents a walk in the park.
Do you run a leisure business or a store? Superfast broadband means you’ll be able to provide visitors with a free wi-fi connection! In this day and age, more and more stores are giving their customers the opportunity to browse while they shop.
Improve your online presence:
Whether you’re consumer facing or not, building a presence online can help boost awareness of your business and lead to improved growth rates. A website, social media and YouTube channel can all be massively beneficial for an enterprise of any size, and a faster, more reliable internet connection means you can do these things better!
